I’m not the type of person to travel miles on miles just to shop at any particular store, but my boyfriend is, and he really wanted to check out a pair of Alden boots at Need Supply in Richmond. Richmond is only about two hours away from DC, but despite the short distance and the fact it has a reputation of being a very artsy city, I’ve never been.
Even though I knew I was about to be dragged into a store I hands down knew I cannot afford, I happily agreed to tag along. Things ended up being a fail on the purchasing cute stuff at Need Supply part of the trip, but we did find Richmond definitely lives up to its rep. The city is covered in street art, so being the two little mural lovers we are, we spent a lot of time driving around looking for photo opps.
